A classic retro wedge-heeled shoe with lace-up.
The Bleyer Wedge shoes are comfortable, retro lace-up wedge shoes with heel straps. The pretty detail on the leather uppers gives them a refined look.
Combining the lace-up fastening across the front of the shoe with a strap and buckle across the heel gives you plenty of scope for making adjustments to ensure these are a great fit for most feet types. The uppers are produced with matt leather and there is a fitted leather insole too.
The wipe-downable PU-soles are similar to Bleyer’s Spin Spot Sole, this hard plastic has enough slip to give you freedom of movement while allowing you to enjoy dancing on different surfaces.

How They Fit
Order At Least One Size Larger Than Standard Euro Sizes
Bleyer shoes are marked with European sizes but they always fit at least one size smaller than typical European sizes. So, for example, if you normally wear a European 38 you would probably want a Bleyer 39. This works for most people but a very small proportion of people require 2 sizes smaller than standard European. (Nobody ever requires their standard Euro size.)
Unisex Shoe Last
Bleyer Boogie Woogie (7130), Rock’n’Roll (BS7132 & BS7134), Lindy Lace Up (BS7135), Saddle (BS7139) and Plain Casuals (BS7530) are all produced on Bleyer’s Unisex last so they all fit the same as each other. Being unisex, we tend to find that most ladies have no problem with width and gents with narrow and standard width feet can also purchase with confidence. For wider shoes please consider the Bleyer Charleston (BS753901).
International Shoe Size Conversions
These shoes are produced with whole Bleyer sizes, but we retail to purchasers across the globe so we have used our experience to translate the Bleyer sizes to different international sizing systems. This is by no means perfect and we welcome all feedback to improve our information. There are no Bleyer half sizes, in the translation approximations that means that there are half sizes in some, but not all, other international sizing systems.
This is simply as a result of the translations, so if your feet are a half size that is not listed, we would normally suggest that you select the next half size up. If you’re still not sure which size to select please call or email for advice. Although we are confident that these translations work for most people, this information is not a guarantee and should be used as a guide only.

Bleyer Wedge Sole
The Bleyer Swivel has a single wedged PU-sole which are incredibly comfortable for dancing. The Wedge sole is two inches high at the heel. The sole has remained popular with jive and swing dancers for many years and is ideal as a practice shoe. It has enough movement to help you move easily across the floor.
It is made from a special non-staining, PU composite and will give you more sure-footed confidence than leather or suede, and the sole will cope with a wider range of surfaces. For example, this sole will tolerate being worn outdoors, afterwards, it can be wiped down ready for your next dancing. It is made from a special non-staining, PU composite.
